Okay. That Autumn part in the title may have you thinking if I live in a different part of the world.
Well, I do…. in my head. I don’t know why I am so crazy about Fall season, maybe because we just don’t have it here and I like lots of falling leaves…
Remember that Fall Themed Tea Party from two years ago? and those Pumpkin Spiced recipes I do? Well, I’m about to do them again and some new ones in the next couple of weeks. For the mean time, let me just tell one thing I do with leftover roasted chicken because believe me when I tell you that we always have leftover chicken at home. If you have kids, I’m sure you know what I’m saying.
I love using leftover chicken in sandwiches, soups, and salads. Usually I just chop some tomatoes and the leftover chicken then tuck them in inside a hot pandesal or in between some sliced bread.
But since I picked up some Butterhead lettuce from the supermarket the other day, I thought it would be nice to try and make a salad out of it. It’s my first time to see Butterhead lettuce at the supermarket. Normally, I see only Romaine Lettuce (my favorite) and Iceberg lettuce.
Butterhead Lettuce is a head lettuce with a loose arrangement of leaves, known for its sweet flavor and tender texture. It is not as crispy as Romaine but it has a distinct flavor on its own. I am not picky with my greens and I love trying out new ones. This has just been added to my list of favorite greens. Sis didn’t like it, though. I had all three heads all to myself.
I hope you see one the next time you go to the supermarket so you can try it for yourself.
This salad went so well with my Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette!Print

Healthy meals. I like salad once in awhile.
I love salads! I want one meal to be salad each day.
This one is a really healthy meal that’s is also really tasty.
Left-over roasted chicken in a salad makes me feel like eating for I love salad spread over in a lettuce with a ready tasty sauce to dip. Wow, it’s too delicious.
Thanks Sir gil!
We don’t follow any season theme for our food at home and just use whatever leftover to make a meal.
I love themed food..LOL!
i do not know much about lettuce, but romaine is my favorite. this butterhead variety sure looks interesting. i will make a mental note to grab some when i go to the grocers
Butterhead has an interesting and likeable flavor. I love Romaine too!
I am very bad at fixing leftovers so your post here will surely come in handy. 🙂
I’m glad I could be of help. Thanks Grace!
I also like working on leftovers. I feel bad throwing them away especially when I can get a lot from them. Thanks for sharing this.
